Making Recipe Cards

with Kokorosa

stamp and cards

Using a stamp set from Kokorosa and a free printable recipe card template, I made these adorable recipe cards. The cards would make a great gift for a newly married couple, someone who requests a recipe, a child leaving the house for the first time, or even a new mom.

Making Little Houses with Kokorosa

little houses

These little houses were so fun to make using a die from Kokorosa. This is a great project to use up small pieces of cardstock. The dies also work well with small die-cutting machines.

die-cutting

The dies fit perfectly in a Sizzix Sidekick machine. I was able to cut a variety of little houses in no time at all. It was really fun to mix and match the different colors to make the houses.

Foil Technique and a Die

with Kokorosa

Finished card

This card can be used for so many different occasions. I am not sure which makes it more beautiful, the die or the foil technique. Together they are exquisite.

Kokorosa provided the Bubbles Background Board die for this post. If you would like to get the same die, here is a discount and link.

It is so interesting how the foil looks like it is on top of the die cut, doesn’t it? The close-up shows the colors reflecting well.

Die-cut Card

with Kokorosa

card front image

I used my DIY Mixed Media Spray and a die from Kokorosa to make this beautiful card. I chose not to use a sentiment, leaving just the lovely image. The card turned out so nice that I wouldn’t mind framing the image.

gold stardream

I used Gold Stardream in 8.5 x 11 for the card. The metallic gold enhances the colors of the die-cut image.

The close-up image above shows the detail of the small shapes that cut out well along with the details of the color created by the media spray. The combination of the two is just amazing.

Valentine’s Day Cardmaking

with Kokorosa

final card

This heart card was made with dies from Kokorosa, mica powder, and mineral powders. There were a few bumps along the way but they can always be resolved, sometimes in a different direction than planned. The technique has merit and I would use it again.

die material

I set my die-cutting machine using double-sided tape to only cut through the double-sided tape, not the cardboard backing.

more matierlas

At the very top of the card front, you can see where I tested the different colors of powders.

The close-up image shows the detail of the die-cut word. You can also see the metallic shine in the cardstock.
